Apparently it's about time we all stop saying apparently. "Apparently Kid" Noah Ritter, who became famous when local news footage of him at the Wayne County Fair went viral last month, caught up with Ellen DeGeneres on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Thursday, Sept. 11, and had some surprising opinions about his once-favorite word.
Ritter, who is just 5 years old, traveled from his native Pennsylvania to Los Angeles for a taping of Ellen.
"Apparently our first guest is an internet sensation and apparently his video has over 15 million views, apparently," the talk show host, 56, said of Ritter.
She then opened the charming tot's segment with the footage of him at the fair. In the clip, Ritter marvels at being on live television and talks about his experience taking a theme park ride, all while repeating the word "apparently" every few seconds throughout his time on air.
With a confident stride, the young man joined DeGeneres to discuss his rise to fame. "This is my first time on a talk show!" he exclaimed. "My first time on a talk show!"
Once he settled in, DeGeneres asked him about the local news interview and his love for the word apparently.
"Yeah, but I got over it now," Ritter said when asked if "apparently" was still his favorite word. "I get over it now and then!" He went on to add that he has a new favorite word, pinpointing "seriously" as his latest catchphrase.
